Synopsis:

Join twins Mia and Maddie and their sidekick little sister, Lulu, as they travel the country finding adventure, mystery, and sometimes mischief along the way. Together with their famous mother, singer Gloria Glimmer, and their slightly wacky nanny Miss Julia, the sisters learn lessons about being good friends, telling the truth, and a whole lot more.
In this fourth book in the Faithgirlz Glimmer Girls series, the Glimmer family is headed to the Big Apple—New York City! Gloria has been asked to perform a concert in Times Square and the whole family joins her. Miss Julia immediately starts planning a sightseeing trip for the sisters that will be better than all the rest, but plans never turn out exactly as they imagine when the Glimmer girls are involved. So what happens when sibling rivalry, random acts of kindness, and a little mystery all meet up at some of the most famous sights in New York City?

Review:

Light Up New York may be the final book in the Glimmer Girls series (following A Dolphin Wish, London Art Chase, and Miracle In Music City,)! Right now Natalie hasn't planned a fifth book, so we shall see! Listen to her about the book and series:





Miss Grace loves this series, and it is perfect for ages 8-11. It has just enough mystery, family and thrills, to keep young girls turning the pages! Miss Grace enjoys how the sibling interact with each other- they may get aggravated, but their love always shows through, no matter what. And they handle mom's celebrity pretty well too! She did solve the mystery ahead of Mia and Maddie, but still loved the ending! I loved how it made New York sound like such fun for kids and was a fun read for kids! 

The book, and the entire series, would be a great Valentine's Day gift, or for adding to the Easter basket this year!
